It's nice that they are finding something for Tyson Kidd to do now that his in-ring career is over. And he'll be back on Total Divas Season 7.
Pro Wrestling Sheet has learned Tyson Kidd, aka TJ Wilson, is making his return to wrestling … however, it won’t be in the ring — he’ll be working in a non-wrestling capacity.
According to sources, Kidd is currently being transitioned into a non-wrestling role. Since it’s still fresh, one source says it’s too early to define whether it’ll be behind the scenes — like a producer/agent — or if he’ll be used in some sort of on-air role that doesn’t require wrestling.
For those who don’t recall, Tyson was injured during a match with Samoa Joe in 2015 that ended his in-ring career. As we previously reported, Kidd was kept from filming Total Divas last season because the company feared he’d open up about the night of his injury.
The 36-year-old recently revealed, however, that he’ll once again appear on the show next season.
No word on whether his move to a backstage position will be chronicled.
